The Kansas Jayhawks were 31-point underdogs going into their contest against the Texas Longhorns. Kansas stunned Texas 57-56 Saturday night to snap the Jayhawks’ eight game losing streak this season and a 56-game losing streak in Big 12 road contests that stretched back to 2008.
The Jayhawks had never won a game against Texas in Austin in the series’ history, entering Saturday 0-9 in those games.
Texas fans are some of the most passionate in the country when everything is going good, but when it hits the wall, they can be passionate in other ways.
After the loss, one fan challenged the Longhorns’ defensive coordinator to a fight.
“If you’re on board any where PK I’ll be in Austin this week,” Rilley said. “Let’s (expletive) throw down. If I win, you get the (expletive) out of Texas and go back to the west coast. If you win, you can stay and “coach” your (expletive) two high safety defense. Spoiler alert I’m going to kick your (expletive)! (Expletive) you!”
Until their game against Texas on Saturday, the Jayhawks had not scored more than 35 points on the season. They scored 57 after putting up 420 yards of offense against the Longhorns.
Despite the embarrassing lose, Texas still could make a bowl with two more wins this season. The Longhorns have to play at West Virginia next week and finish the season by hosting Kansas State. With the way things are going, they will likely end this year on a terrible note.
Texas is not back.
